OK, So it looks like I might be the only one. I figure I might as well share my experiences, just in case someone might stumble onto this thread.
We've had our trailer for 3 weeks and after our first 2 outings we found a few things that warranted taking it into the shop. Nothing major (we hope), just a few things that need to be addressed. They are:
#1 - One of the cushions in the dinette was 2 inches too short
. Not sure how it happened but not having enough cushion to cover the wood base is not only an aesthetic issue but also a potential pain in the ....well, you know.
#2 - This is probably the most worrisome issue. There is a slight floor 'pop' when you step to the right of the door in the interior.
When you get down on ground level you can feel a slight 'lifting' just underneath the linoleum. It's a relatively small area but I'm a little fearful of some delamination of the subfloor material. Not really sure what the cause is but if it requires rolling back the linoleum and gluing things back down, it could be in the shop awhile.
#3 - The outside kitchen LED light is wired to the bathroom light switch
So, in order to use the exterior kitchen light, you have to go in and turn on the bathroom light. Obviously a mistake :-) This was a pain because we were always running into the trailer and turning the light back on to use the outside kitchen in the evening.
#4 - A few drawers were missing their latching hardware
. This was odd because some had the male component but were missing the receiver.
#5 - The dinette table is 1.5" inches too short to use as a fold-down bed
Not quite sure how they will remedy this. I'm hoping they just installed the wrong table.
#6 - Really minor thing. The labels in the bathroom fan hang down
so that when you turn on the fan it sounds like a hive of bees. I could have taken care of this but since it was going in the shop anyway I figured I'd let them deal with it. My neck gets sore when I look up too long.
#7 - The Jensen TV had some dead pixels in the display
. Not really a trailer issue but they said they would take care of it.
#8 - The sink plug/screens were MIA
. Nowhere to be found. Made washing the dishes a little difficult.
There were also a couple of little issues that I took care of just because I could and really didn't want to wait until it went to the shop. They include:
#1 - The bathroom door handle was installed backwards
...so, I could lock my wife in the bathroom but she couldn't lock me out.
#2 - The weight on the pull out sprayer under the kitchen sink was installed on the wrong side of the handle
. So, the faucet head wouldn't pull back up into the faucet housing.
So, there you have it. Our first round of issues for our NEW trailer. Nothing too horrible and we really do like the way this trailer pulls and WE LOVE
the layout. It fits us very well and we knew from the inception that we would have a list of fixes as we went along.
